November 2018 Healthy News: Chiropractic for Headache & Vitamin D for Migraine

San Jose chiropractic care at Chiropractic Solutions may reduce headache days each month. 


Headaches are not unusual! Many San Jose headache sufferers attain headache relief with San Jose chiropractic care. One out of every 5 new chiropractic patients visit to a chiropractor’s office like Chiropractic Solutions with a complaint of headache. Headache patients comprise a significant part of the chiropractic practice, and that is true for Chiropractic Solutions. Chiropractors many times identify and co-manage headache patients with other healthcare providers. (1) Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for cervicogenic headache is written to be quite effective. For the most benefit, a new study discovered that 18 SMT visits in contrast to 1, 6, and 12 visits, is most effective, reducing cervicogenic headache days by half. Compared with slight massage, SMT also produced 3 more cervicogenic headache-free days a month. (2)

Chiropractic Solutions shares a new study that higher Vitamin D levels may reduce migraine headache incidence. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been offered that the inflammation and a diminished immune system may have a role in migraine headache. The role of nutrients – vitamin D, vitamin B12, alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, and riboflavin - in the supportive care of migraines is reportedly therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that better levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% versus levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) San Jose migraine sufferers may want to consider improving their Vitamin D status in addition to their San Jose chiropractic care plan.
